July 18, 1992

Most of us have no idea of the significance that July 18, 1992 plays in each of our daily lives. It is a rather historic day and one we all should celebrate. It is the day the first photo ever was uploaded onto the internet! Silvano de Gennaro took this photo and passed it onto his coworker and internet creator Tim Berners-Lee. The rest is history. The funny thing is the photo is nothing spectacular. It is just a snapshot of a wannabe pop group that was then edited using Photoshop 1.0! As we approach the 20th anniversary of this day, take a moment and realize the long way we have come with our photo technology. And smile!
